(Medical Abortion) New York
Abortion 4-10 weeks
Non-surgical abortions, sometimes called “medical abortions,” are performed in the first 6-10 weeks in the first trimester. Non-surgical abortion can be administered in pill form. This pill is approved by the FDA for non-surgical abortion.
This non-surgical method of abortion will stop your pregnancy from growing and furthermore the oral tablets will help expel your pregnancy.
There is a small statistical chance of failure with this method, so you must be physically healthy enough and willing to undergo a surgical abortion in the unlikely event that this non-surgical method fails.
In addition, you must be able to commit to 2 or more visits to the office.
You agree to the following requirements:
- Agree to have a surgical abortion if the non-surgical abortion fails.
- Can receive phone calls from the office.
- Need immediate, reliable access to transportation in the event of an emergency.
- Agree to return to the office for a check-up afterwards.
How does the Abortion Pill work?
The medication (Mifeprex) blocks a hormone needed for your pregnancy to continue. When used together with another medicine called Misoprostol, Mifeprex ends your pregnancy.
How effective is the Abortion Pill?
Mifeprex followed by oral tablets is approximately 98% effective.
What are the advantages of the Abortion Pill?
Because Mifeprex comes in pill form and is taken by mouth, you can usually avoid surgery. Also, because it works very early in your pregnancy, Mifeprex allows you to take early action to end your pregnancy.
What are the side effects of the Abortion Pill?
Bleeding and cramping are a normal part of the process. The bleeding can be heavier than a normal period and usually lasts on and off from 9-16 days. In some cases, women may have severe bleeding and then would need to contact us immediately.
Your provider will instruct you on how to handle any pain, nausea, headache, vomiting, or diarrhea that could also occur.
How safe is the Abortion Pill?
The FDA, which has tested it for both safety and effectiveness, has approved Mifeprex.
In the past decade, almost 700,000 women in Europe have safely used Mifeprex to end their pregnancies. It is now approved for use in more than 23 countries.
